Youth Apprenticeship Info Night set for Feb. 12

Posted February 5, 2018

Plymouth High School sophomores and juniors are invited to a Youth Apprenticeship Information Night, to learn more about this opportunity for high school students to get paid to explore a potential career.

Youth Apprenticeship provides high school students with hands-on learning in an occupational area along with classroom instruction. It combines academic and technical instruction with mentored on-the-job training.

YA Info Night will run from 5:45 to 8 p.m. Monday, Feb. 12, with a presentation at 5:45 p.m. in the auditorium at Plymouth High School, 125 Highland Ave.

Partnering employers will be available to speak about Youth Apprenticeship opportunities. Program areas include agriculture, finance, health, hospitality and culinary, information technology, architecture and construction, STEM, manufacturing, and transportation.

Youth Apprenticeship is sponsored by the state Department of Workforce Development and is coordinated locally by Lakeshore Technical College. PHS students have taken full advantage of the opportunity, serving 67 Youth Apprenticeships since the 2012-13 school year.

All students intending to apply for a Youth Apprenticeship must attend an information night with a parent or guardian. An additional event will begin at 5:45 p.m. Monday, Feb. 5 at Sheboygan South High School, 1240 Washington Ave.
